Description: Monteiths kitchen prides itself on using great quality ingredients that are locally sourced where possible. Provenance is hugely important and we work closely with our suppliers to ensure that our food comes from farm, to plate as quickly as possible. Although we frequently change our menu to reflect the changing seasons we also have a range of specials including dry aged fillet steaks and chateaubriand available. There is also a selection of seasonal dishes from the sea including fresh Scottish lobster and oysters

“lovely restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

the food was very good and i would go back although the staff were nice/friendly, i thought that they didn't quite have the right timing. lots of staff interrupting asking if everything's ok, offering drinks etc followed by big gaps being left with empty plates, struggling to get anyone's attention etc. it might have been an off night, but not ideal.

only other complaint was the table was too small in comparison to the over sized plates. couldn't actually fit the dishes on the table.

otherwise a good meal

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Popped in here on the recommendation of our waiter at a nearby restaurant.

What a lovely little bar, great ambience, comfortable chairs, a very helpful and knowledgable bar man. My colleague was blown away by the Negroni he was served.

Would recommend and would love to have had eaten here, the food looked divine!

“Great Birthday Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Nephews 40th night out was a great success. The menu is well thought out, the food was delicious, the atmosphere vibrant, the service outstanding - all in all an excellent restaurant to recommend. Oh, and the Cape 1642 Shiraz/Viognier such a nice wine I ordered a case for home consumption.

“Great Night Out”

As many people say from other reviews, a great entrance on the Royal Mile. Friendly staff, good food, particularly the steaks. The house Shiraz was great too. Would recommend and will go again when next in Edinburgh

“Wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We were just walking in Edinburgh and were taken by a beautiful arched entrance which was enchantingly decorated. So we entered and experienced our best dinner so far on our six week European epic trip. Two of us had the Haddock which was excellent. I am not sure what the sauce was but it was exceptional. I have worked and dined in NYC and traveled the world on business for twenty years and this dinner experience was five star. It was a truly wonderful surprise with excellent food and friendly attentive service.
